Hidden fields in the forms builder

Hidden fields can have a number of uses when used in integrations:

  1. Allow a form developer the ability to embed integration specific information into a form - such as a CRM Category ID.
  2. Give the ability to create a form post with an additional field that can be updated at a later date

When you insert a hidden field, you are given the option of Field Name and Initial Value. The Field Name is used as a key within the forms NameValueCollection to access the field within Code. This is the key that you would use to update Form Post values in code.
